iPhone 3G getting hot
« on: June 20, 2013, 08:33:18 PM »
Why is my iPhone overheating?? I restored to WD a couple days ago, and since that my phone is getting hot when I charge it AND in regular use. I was doing something in iFile today, and I realised that it started getting hot.. Sometimes I get a fast battery drain, too-- battery 30%, play game, after 5-10 mins, battery 10%.. And I tried PowerControl app set on Underclock mode, still the same. :( Help?

Does it still get hot on stock iOS non jailbroken with no backup restored to the device?

I had iOS 4.1 jailbroken before this, without backups. And it was all good.

Do you have a backup restored on this install?

You could try stock 3.1.3 to see if that overheats the device as well.  If you are using in direct sunlight it will overheat normally though...

No, I don't have restored backups. I can't restore because my cable is not working really well with my PC :P Actually, it's night here, so there's no sunlight ;D

I don't really know, have you done any other sorts of file system mods?   Was it overheating before you installed the power control?

Then I don't really know what would cause that :/   It might be something in whited00r, but I can't know for sure until you can restore to 3.1.3 :/

In the setup tool, almost everything is disabled and screen brightness is on the middle with Auto brightness on.
